Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan has indicated that the prices of its gaming laptops will increase next year as a global chip shortage pushes up the price of components needed to manufacture devices.

Tan tweeted: “Just had a long meeting to review our gaming laptops line for next year – looks like there are significant increases in component costs etc and we’ll be seeing price increases for next gen gaming laptops across the board (including the @Razer Blade) next year.”
